Art educators living, working or interested in Asia

Here's a link to a blog I created with the express intention of encouraging others to get involved in a 'Taking and Giving Back' project. Simply put, whenever you travel and take portraits of individuals, you try to give them back a copy of the photo. After all, who owns the image?

As part of the IB curriculum students are required to be involved in service learning. So often we see great photos of various community projects - lots of shots of smiling children and people having fun. Often these photos are used by the school in promotional materials and usually the subjects of the photos don't get a copy. Why not?

Any thoughts?

Great idea. We have done this as a family with instant Polaroid film, and the people LOVE it. I like the idea and could be done here in Hong Kong. If I can put this to the test, I'll keep ya posted.

Great idea! We used to take photos in the village behind our school which is now demolished. We would bring back some images and the people were always delighted. It was a task to do it and remember to bring the photos as we are  so busy at school!
